Wow! Thanks everyone for all the comments on my last post. I really did have a lot of fun with the Faber-Castell products, and I ordered a few more colors. And the little page from my Art Journal turned into something bigger - and I think much better. I finally enlarged one of my favorite stamps. The Sharp Owl - and then I created a journal for my daughter. An idea book of sorts, you know all the great things an 8 year old can think of.
The background was a lot of fun to make. Just color up the paper with the aquarelles and then paint over it with water. I never would have choose this color palette, but I think the owl looks great with it. But I'm going to try again when I get my blues and greens! And the gellatos add texture and depth. So artistic! Ha ha!
More owly stuff coming up. I have an order for two Christmas ornaments, and a surprise project by a guest designer... hoot hoot!
